Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is worried about the racist chants directed at Vinicius Jr. during the match with Mallorca. Ancelotti is worried about such things and wonders what the problem is. "The question I ask is this: What is the problem?" said Ancelotti, as quoted by eurosport.com Ancelotti believes that this is a problem for Spanish football that they must solve as soon as possible.
"Vinicius? Vinicius' team-mates? What's the problem? To defend himself? What does Vinicius have to defend himself against? What do his team-mates have to defend themselves against? I don't know.
It seems like the problem is Vinicius, but the problem is what happens around him.
It is a problem of Spanish football. I am a part of Spanish football and I think it's a problem that we have to solve because it seems that Vinicius is the culprit, but he is the victim of something that I don't understand."
Vinicius Jr response
Vinicius Jr had a great response to people shooting racist chants.
The color of the skin should not be the reason for such behavior of the crowd. Truly shameful things happen in the 21st century. We expect La Liga to make certain moves. "As long as the colour of the skin is more important than the brightness of the eyes, there will be war,”-Vini Jr.
"I have that phrase tattooed on my body. I have this thought permanently in my head. And I have attitudes in my life that turn this philosophy into reality.
They say that happiness bothers. The happiness of a black Brazilian being successful in Europe bothers much more.
But my will to win, my smile and the sparkle in my eyes are much bigger than that.
Don't even try to imagine how much.
They are dances to celebrate the cultural diversity of the world. Accept it! Respect it! Or freak out… In any case, I will not stop!”
